JEE Advanced 2017 Preparation Tips for Physics

Preparation tips to prepare for physics section are given below

  • The key to qualifying every competitive examination is Time Management and Practice. “Practice makes a man perfect” which could be made possible by practicing sample papers regularly.
  • Candidates must start their preparation with the topics of maximum weightage and the probability of appearance in the question paper.
  • It is very important for the aspirants to practice the use of smart tricks to solve lengthy numerical it will save a lot of time.
  • By solving sample papers the candidate will get the idea about the pattern of the question paper, which will eventually help the student to solve the JEE Advanced question paper easily.
  • Candidate must maintain a flash card or note of all the important formulae from the beginning so that it will help in revising the formulae at the last moment.
  • If a student has prepared accurately for JEE Mains and qualified it with flying colors, then he/she does not have to put any extra effort for JEE Advanced.
  • It is advisable to attempt the questions very carefully as there is provision of negative marking in JEE Advanced 2017, candidates must opt only those questions they are very confident.
